Gift Economy

The Temple of Goddess Spirituality Dedicated to Sekhmet promotes Goddess Spirituality, Peace, and the Gift Economy.  The Goddess Temple is a project of the Center for the Study of the Gift Economy under the direction of Genevieve Vaughan.  Here, feminine values are honored and the Divine Mother is revered.

The sand-colored stucco Temple opens to the elements of nature, with archways to the four directions and an open roof to the sky. Peace and reverence live within the temple, welcoming all that come. Together in ritual we celebrate the dance of the earth, sun, and moon. All are invited to pray, meditate, and connect with the Divine Feminine that is within and around us.

Welcome to the Goddess Temple of Sekhmet. I am so happy you have come to visit me. I am the Goddess of fertility, the desert, and much more. Fire is my element, and the Sun is my messenger. Come closer, I may whisper one of my more than 10,000 names to you. Humans only know about 4,000. But you may know more, – perhaps! Visit with me, show me your love and sincerity. Tell me of your dreams. . I also want to know of your dedication to purifying this Earth and honoring every spirit. Can you welcome death and know its true intention? Why give life to death?

Sacred Art At The Temple

Spiritual retreat can take many forms. Imagine coming to the Temple of Goddess Spirituality for an artist’s retreat. Here in the deep peace of the desert silence, ideas are waiting to germinate. Come paint a picture, make a sculpture, or create a beautiful mosaic piece. Creativity is one of the most spiritual acts we are capable of. When we bring something into being, we are expressing our Goddess nature. What is waiting to come to birth through you? By giving yourself the gift of the desert’s silence and stillness, you can deepen into the Source from which creativity …
